|7 Bandits - A Flock of Dream Tokens [onmp040] - 7 Bandits|
Although 7 Bandits' blueprint for electronic listening music -- aching electro-synth with mid-tempo beats and occasional guitars -- isn't quite a revolution in and of itself, A Flock of Dream Tokens is an amazing album. Similar to the early work of Autechre, Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada, the band is one of the few European artists who can match their American precursors with regard to a sense of spirit in otherwise electronic music...

|Zero V - L.A. Riot [onmp065] - Zero V|
After an album and a few EPs of baffling, mood and style swings, Zero V is definitely due for a change. Zero V has never turned in a substandard production.

|Natashas - Old School [onmp048] - Natashas|
G's credentials as one of the most distinctive producers in music are untested from the evidence of Old School, and it includes some of her best tracks. Even while spinning a hooky track capable of succeeding in a 30-second advert or a video-game sountrack, G is able to coax the most amazing sounds -- electric pianos that sound like none you've heard before, distorted basslines with more grit than any you've heard, multiple point-precise effects lines working in tandem like gears in a Tag-Heuer...
